About This Class

In this class I will teach you to make a simple but pretty, solid silver pendant using a fraction of the tools required for traditional silversmithing.


You will learn what silver clay is, how it works and the skills required to make a piece if jewellery you can cherish forever.

Step by step I will show you how to form the clay, apply a pattern, dry it, refine it, fire it and finish it.

Once you have these skills you will be able to go on and experiment to create more pieces.  No prior experience is needed and it can be done at your kitchen table.

This class is suitable for magpies and lovers of shiny things.

I will be creating further more advanced classes but this is a useful one for gaining the basic skills and an understanding of Silver Clay.
